The DJ112G road is not for timid drivers

DJ112G is the name of a very challenging mountain road located in Brașov County, Transylvania, Romania.


Tucked away in the Piatra Craiului Mountains, which are part of the Southern Carpathians mountains range, the road is 10.5 km (6.52 miles) long and links the towns of Zărnești, in Braşov County, Transylvania and Peştera. It is mostly unpaved, with some short paved sections that goes up and down the very steep hills between these two villages. It is littered with huge holes and large portions of it are washed away, especially in spring after the snow melts.

The road is pretty steep, narrow, and without protections. It can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. The scenery is mind-blowing and you do not need a 4x4 to traverse the road although it is recommended and low clearance cars have no chance of traversing the steeper sections of this road. The road tops out at 1.191m (3,907ft) above the sea level. It's the main access road to the defiant Zărneştilor Gorges.
